Neil and I both love the idea of adding cream cheese to this chowder! It must make it so thick and creamy! We are writing out a shopping list of ingredients right now.
I love your website!
I am wondering if one can use the crock pot to "reheat" a recipe. I am going to make the Sausage Corn Chowder recipe on your website to bring for dinner tomorrow night at a speech tournament. I have to drive almost 2 hours to get there and will arrive at the tournament around 11am. I can either make it all ahead of time and reheat it in the crockpot, or make it partway today and add the rest of the ingredients tomorrow as it reheats. What would you suggest?

How did you go with the recipe? Which option did you use? The health experts advise against using the crock pot to re-heat and I'm curious as to how it went.
The recipe was delicious! I made the recipe in full (all except the veggies and crème cheese) before hand at home, then added the rest at the tournament.
Thanks for getting back to me!
Crock Pot Creamy Potato and Sausage Chowder Recipe
Chicken Broth-- 3 14-15 oz cans
1 can (10 oz) cream of chicken soup
12 cups of peeled, diced potatoes
2 pounds of sausage (I use Johsonville Sausage, remove casing, chop up, fry, drain. I use one package of Hot sausage, and one package of regular sausage.)
1 8 oz package of Cream Cheese
3 tbsp. of corn starch
1 12 oz bag of frozen corn
1 tbsp. pepper
salt to taste
Place chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, potatoes in crock pot.
Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
During the LAST hour, add the cream cheese, (softened), sausage and corn, and Corn starch.
MAKE sure to blend corn starch before adding to hot chowder or it will lump up.
I mix 3 tbsp. cornstarch with 3 Tbsp. cold water, stir until dissolved and then add to chowder.
Cook for additional hour, serve!
It's a thick, creamy FILLING chowder!
This makes a FULL 5-6 qt. crockpot amount.
It keeps for DAYS.
We eat on it for 3-4 days in our family of 4.
You can add broccoli, or cauliflower in place of potatoes if you are watching your carb/starch intake.
You can also use Light or Fat free cream cheese and you can use low sodium chicken broth as well.
This is the BEST chowder!
